    We can always count on Shakira to turn up the heat with each new song she shares with the world, and she certainly did it with her latest single “Don’t Wait Up”. This song is the very definition of summertime fun, and its music video perfectly captures its playful spirit.

    The video for this song was filmed in Tenerife in Spain’s Canary Islands. It opens with Shakira catching some waves on a neon-lit surfboard before showing off her epic moves on the dance floor. Long story short, this music video is all about summertime vibes, and that was exactly the singer’s idea behind this song.

    “I’m excited to share my new song ‘Don’t Wait Up’ with everyone – the day we came up with this in the studio, I knew it would be perfect for summer and those nights where you just want to not think about tomorrow!” Shakira said in a statement.

    “Don’t Wait Up” will serve as the lead single on her upcoming 12th studio album. It’s her first English-language single since 2016’s “Try Everything” and the first solo song she released since her last album El Dorado came out in 2017.
